This project is distinctive in that it really is a `Who's Who' rather than a directory of all scholars engaged in international business education and research. It develops a select sample of 150 leading scholars and practitioners extracted from a sample of at least 1200 in the field. The sample is drawn from the use of multiple selection criteria reflecting research productivity, citational analysis, executive officers and fellows of the AIB, management of US-based CIBERS and peer-based nominations. These indicators highlight contributions that expand the frontiers of research and also recognize contributions to professional and institutional development. The compilation is also distinctive in that it allows respondents to offer a personal statement on the principal contributions they have made to the field of international business. The main listing in the book is alphabetic by name and the information is indexed for ease of reference. The volume serves as a central reference in the field of international business, and is an indispensable guide to academic, government and business communities.

This important and original dictionary presents for the first time in an easily accessible form a wide range of terms and concepts used in free-market economics. It includes entries on theories of the market economy, as well as empirical studies of economic freedom and informative biographies of free-market economists.

In addition, they often do not include references on important and controversial topics such as free banking. This Dictionary includes definitive entries that are not covered elsewhere, as well as explaining key terms and concepts from the Austrian, Chicago, Virginia Public Choice, Law and Economics and Georgists schools of thought. It also incorporates the essential points of a particular topic, concept or term used in law, finance and classical liberal philosophy as well as many basic terms used in economics.

This volume offers an impressive collection of scholarly papers which investigate the historical foundations of globalisation before 1945. The book explores the effects of the nineteenth century technologies of the railway, the telegraph and the steamship which promoted the globalisation process by boosting trade across frontiers and triggering migration of labour and flows of capital to the temperate areas of agriculture. The colonial empires, in particular the British Empire, facilitated the process, as the integration of capital markets and monetary systems and methods of business organization followed trade and labour. The volume also covers the time between the wars, when impediments to trade, migration and currency movements increased and led to a period of deglobalization and divergence.
Mathematical Economics is an authoritative collection of the most influential contributions essential to an understanding of this important area of economic science. These seminal papers illustrate the development of the field from its inception in the 19th century up to the present, and exhibit the power of mathematics to lead to new thinking which can illuminate the scientific structures underlying economic arguments. Many of these papers started new fields of economics, influencing deeply the way economists think about their world. They illustrate the extensive range of topics to which mathematics has been applied productively, and show the areas of mathematics which have proved valuable, including functional analysis, linear algebra, algebraic and differential topology, stochastic processes and dynamical systems. They also show the extent to which today's policy analysis rests on yesterday's mathematical economics. Anyone with an interest in economics as a science will find this collection indispensable. The collection is an essential part of any course using mathematical economics.
The concern for the fast-disappearing language stocks of the world has arisen particularly in the past decade, as a result of the impact of globalization. This book appears as an answer to a felt need: to catalogue and describe those languages, making up the vast majority of the world's six thousand or more distinct tongues, which are in danger of disappearing within the next few decades. Endangerment is a complex issue, and the reasons why so many of the world's smaller, less empowered languages are not being passed on to future generations today are discussed in the book's introduction. The introduction is followed by regional sections, each authored by a notable specialist, combining to provide a comprehensive listing of every language which, by the criteria of endangerment set out in the introduction, is likely to disappear within the next few decades. These languages make up ninety per cent of the world's remaining language stocks. Each regional section comprises an introduction that deals with problems of language preservation peculiar to the area, surveys of known extinct languages, and problems of classification. The introduction is followed by a list of all known languages within the region, endangered or not, arranged by genetic affiliation, with endangered and extinct languages marked. This listing is followed by entries in alphabetical order covering each language listed as endangered. Useful maps are provided to pinpoint the more complex clusters of smaller languages in every region of the world. The Encyclopedia therefore provides in a single resource: expert analysis of the current language policy situation in every multilingual country and on every continent, detailed descriptions of little-known languages from all over the world, and clear alphabetical entries, region by region, of all the world's languages currently thought to be in danger of extinction. The Encyclopedia of the World's Endangered Languages will be a necessary addition to all academic linguistics collections and will be a useful resource for a range of readers with an interest in development studies, cultural heritage and international affairs.

Hugo Grotius (1583-1645), the Dutch jurist and philosopher, is a key theorist of the post-mediaeval state. According to Grotius, the state is not subject to any terrestrial superior, either political or ecclesiastical. His political writings develop the consequences of this condition including the construction of state authority in terms of 'natural rights', acknowledging the right to self-protection and the needs of individuals. A further development is the idea that the state is the instrument of justice beyond its own boundaries. He asserted that there were universal moral standards that could be used to judge questions of international conflict. This universal morality was based on two prinicples: that self-preservation is always legitimate; and that wanton injury of another is always illegitimate. [On this foundation, rules for reconciling conflict could be erected and the existence of civil society explained.] These views have characterised much political thought from Grotius' day to the present and have played their part in the history of international law. This collection of articles presents in chronological order the writings of 20th century authors on Grotius and covers such topics as the life of Grotius, the evolution of his ideas, his contribution to the theory of `natural law' and his wider significance as a political thinker.
